I have been digging a turn of the century dump that I got a tip on lately. I have been coming up with mostly blob beers (exactly what I am looking for) towards the bottom. From what I can tell the dump was used from the late 1890s to probably around the 1920s. I was collapsing some of the overburden in my current hole and when I went to clean it out, this odd, green, glass something or other appeared in my shovel. I can't say if it was towards the top or middle layers. Regardless, I have no idea what it is. I would have thought a small kerosene lamp, but it has ground lip and no thread for the burner. It seems an odd shape for a vase. The other is an odd ceramic cone thingy that was along the bottom layer. It is very crude but is glazed so it appears to have been made for some purpose. Any ideas on either?
